I just changed my laptop to debian squeeze, downloaded R devel from svn repo, as described in the manual.

Then I configured for building in a separate build dir with:

kjetil_at_kjetil:~/R/Rbuilddir$ sudo ../svn/configure

R is now configured for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

  Source directory: ../svn
  Installation directory: /usr/local

  C compiler:                gcc -std=gnu99  -g -O2
  Fortran 77 compiler:       gfortran  -g -O

  C++ compiler:              g++  -g -O2
  Fortran 90/95 compiler: gfortran -g -O   Obj-C compiler:
  Interfaces supported:      X11
  External libraries:        readline, ICU
  Additional capabilities:   NLS
  Options enabled:           shared BLAS, R profiling, Java

  Recommended packages:      yes

sudo make

stops near the end with:
